New Release & Giveaway: The Killed Conscience by Jordan Antonacci

 

Mystery
Date Published: 6-22-2018
 

Still at the beginning of her career, investigative journalist Emilee Weathers is desperate for the perfect story and doesn’t care how she has to get it. When she’s asked to assist in a convicted serial killer’s appeal, it almost seems the perfect story has come banging at her door.

But not long after arriving to the mountain town of Pigeon Forge, Emilee discovers the body of another, more recent victim. With the body showing signatures of the already-convicted murderer, Emilee sets out to discover if she’s happened upon the work of a copycat, or if the real killer was ever even caught. The more she looks though, the murkier everything becomes. Police begin withholding information and the killer seems capable of going any length to protect his identity. On top of it all, when her investigations uncover the buried secrets of those closest to her, Emilee questions who it is she can and can’t trust in those mountains, if anyone at all.

New Release: Transformation: The Hidden Mystery by Ewanga Sakwe

An incredible and fascinating journey of young Kenzie who was indoctrinated to maintain his aristocratic childhood. He was brainwashed by his friends, and accordingly, he became an active gang member with extremist ideology.

He inherited much wealth from his parents and grandparents, and he happened to set up successful multimillion companies.  Family feuds ripped them apart when his only daughter, Anna defied his philosophies, failed to boss his companies and had a child out of wedlock.

Tormented by succession of calamities, he’s determined to keep up the dogma that had brought him too much pain. Thus, he made an advanced directive to his attorney, a true reflection of his disturbed conscience.

This novel is a fantastic and an inconceivable revolution.

‘Will Kenzie’s life experiences result to a transformation?’

 

 

Excerpt from the book:

“As we drove back home, I cuddled the teddy that was meant to be in my baby’s bed.  Every so often, I would shrink with anger and burst into tears.  What would I tell my boyfriend and Sophie?  I cried continuously every day, lost appetite and lost two stones in weight.  My parents could not take it anymore; they had to invite the psychologist to assess me and advise.  I was thinking of ending it all; why should I live when my baby was gone?  I’d lost all hope.  I had a month session with the psychologist which helped to boost my self-esteem.  Our home turned into a total mess, and my parents argued all the time.  There were no family meals; we ate at different intervals and I had minimal interaction or communication with them.

Even though my parents seemed to have grown apart, there was no sign that they were grieving for the loss of their only grandchild.  They seemed to have their own issues that bothered them more than the lost child.  I started having flashbacks of how they were not happy with my pregnancy and how they insisted that I should have an abortion.  Dad never wanted me to marry somebody out of the aristocratic society, not to even think of a biracial child?

Why did Dad disappear with the midwife for over two days and Mum did not make a fuss when he returned?  I also remembered that they gave me a lot of support after our family doctor advised that it was impossible to abort a baby.  Had they been acting?  I wondered.  Was there something they were hiding that I needed to know?  Or was I just being paranoid?

I spent most of my days in solace in my bedroom.  One day I heard my parents arguing in their room, so I crept and stood at the door to listen to what they were saying.

‘Why did you do it?’ Mum asked.

These words kept echoing in their arguments.  ‘If not of your decision…,’ Dad retorted.

I moved forward, I was going for the door handle to open it and confront them, but another force stopped me.

Grr!  They are all evil, I couldn’t understand what was going on.  What were they planning to do to me next?

I decided to disappear; I couldn’t bear the pain to live with them.”

Excerpt

“The black cut glass hearse arrived for what we discovered was a high-end Mafia burial. Seven horses were adorned with plumes of feathers any bird would die for, I’ll rephrase that, did die for. Walking pallbearers were complete with top hats, black leather gloves and bulges under their coats that could only be from the guns they were toting in case of trouble. The parade was formidable, every slime ball from here to the Sicilian homeland was in attendance and we stood out like a pair of white men at a Martin Luther King rally.

“I had no idea how much they revered their members,” I whispered, as I realised how out of touch we were with the people we had inadvertently become involved with.

“I’m staggered. I had no concept of the power these guys wielded,” he murmured not wishing to rock the boat, in case it sank into the depths taking us with it.

“Do you think we should quit now and abandon our project leaving them to their own?” I suggested, feeling out of depth amongst these thugs.

“I’m not sure which would be best, a lead-welly for staying or a lead-welly for dropping out,” he added, his attempt at frivolity falling on deaf ears, as I grimaced with the choices we had.

I cringed all the way through the Godfather music and weeping of black-veiled mourners obviously paid for the best effect or as warning to anyone seeking to dispense with one of their own. The flower adorned church burst with a show of solidarity unknown to the civilised world, complete with speeches about the courageous and dedicated nature of their brother Gustaff. I wanted to puke at the thought that someone so obviously corrupt could be made Godlike because he was dead.”

New Release: Isobelle by Howard G. Awbery

Never in a million years could she have imagined that any one customer would make so much difference to her life. However, one day into her busy London boutique came such a customer. ‘Shoulders’, as she derogatorily referred to him, rocked her equilibrium and tumbled her settled, solitary, secure life over and over again. Before ‘Shoulders’, Isobelle’s independence was her armour against all-comers; she believed her life and emotions impenetrable. As she reluctantly came increasingly embroiled in this customer’s complex life she realised how wrong she was.

 

 

Excerpt from the book:

“Isobelle flashed into his mind whenever he was alone. He could clearly see her face, hear her laugh and feel her soft touch. He felt so bad at losing her. He knew why he hadn’t disclosed what he was about to do. It would have made her so vulnerable. He had been 100% right in his decision not to involve her any more. Now she wasn’t vulnerable but she would be rightly mad as hell or just sad that he hadn’t felt he could confide in her. They had come to mean so much to each other so quickly. He pondered over whether he missed her because he couldn’t be with her or was the real reason that he felt he had already lost her?

She had, he remembered, saved his life when they were back at her cottage. There was no doubt in his mind that the guy with the gun, once he had finished with his wife would have shot them both. She had been amazing. However, he felt sure having left Isobelle twice there was no way back now.

A call from the receptionist to his room early the next morning announced the long awaited letter.”

 

Amazon review:

5.0 out of 5 stars Super holiday read!

A fantastic read, intriguing and captivating. Mystery, romance, tragedy and happiness with twists and turns all through the story. I literally didn’t want to put this down.

 

“Isobelle” is currently available in paperback from Amazon UK and Amazon US.
